where do you buy books?

Okay, so there’s this local nonprofit that holds huge used book sales twice a year, and they’ve completely ruined me from buying books anywhere else. They actually just had one of their sales last weekend and I got 39 books for $10. They sell them by the bag. And the money all goes towards women’s scholarships. Like, how can you beat that? But if I need a specific book and they don’t have it or the sale’s not going on yet, I’ll just go to Barnes & Noble cause that’s closest. 

top 5 children’s books?

  1. The Wreck of the Zephyr by Chris Van Allsburg
  2. Where the Wild Things Are by Maurice Sendak
  3. Green Eggs and Ham by Dr. Seuss
  4. Goodnight Moon by Margaret Wise Brown
  5. Sideways Stories from Wayside School by Louis Sachar

It’s a pile of sea logged wood
rusting the shoreline
the ruins of some
with nothing left to do
but wither
that final unend
the nearest thing to a horizon
you’ll ever touch

You can carve your name
in its planks
if you want futility
the way some people
want reason to live
There are not enough hyphens
to link the words
of such a noun

So carve your name
in the wreck of the zephyr
just to watch it wither
To watch it fade
like inspiration
but a leaf waiting
for autumn

Zephyr Is Going To Wreck My Baby


You would really think Luka would learn a thing or two about paying attention to where he was going after 5000 years, but he hasn’t. He really hasn’t.

Luka was lost in thought while on his way to the fabric store when he crashed right into someone. God dammit he really needed to watch where he was going.

“Oh god, I’m so sorry! I wasn’t paying attention!”
